Fully inclusive and tailored school skipping days

No matter what your budget is, we can help you make the most of it with our wide range of school skipping day options

Dan the Skipping Man® School Skipping Days

We provide tailored DTSM skipping days for schools and other organisations. Because we understand that one size very rarely fits all, our service is deeply personalised. The team work with you to create the very best experience for your children, ensuring we maximise both your budget and the fun. And we take the time to listen to you and what you want to achieve before creating a package that’s designed specifically for you. All our days include numerous sessions for your children, CPD training for your team, a wide range of resources and access to our hugely popular YouTube channel. As well as a spectacular end of day Skipping Show performed by the children.

Our standard school skipping day packages

We are experts in what we do and have amazing, formatted skipping days for all ages. As well as mentoring programmes and Skipping Festivals. Our standard package is created (for simplicity) for a single form entry school, if however you’re a smaller school we can offer you half-day workshops. Equally, if you’re a large school we can provide our Skipping Days (as set out below, but covering all your classes) over a number of days, or provide you with multiple coaches. Just get in touch to discuss what you need and we would be delighted to work with you to create the perfect approach for you. 

Inclusive sessions, formatted and tailored to age and ability

Skipping rope options, to help to build the programme

Our ropes are built to last. If each child has a rope for one year, the cost would be just over 1p, per child, per day

Our amazing ropes will help you Skip Every Day, along with the guidance on our Skipping Hub. All our resources can be used with or without a DTSM Day. Getting great DTSM skipping ropes will: 

Option 1: Parent funded

Pop-up Shop (on your DTSM Day)

Option 2: Small school investment, big impact

Ropes to School™ - Class sets for PE or the playground

Option 3: Larger investment, stunning impact

Ropes to Pupils™ - A rope for every child

Skipping Stars

Our pupil mentoring programme

We also offer something extra special, in order to get your older children inspiring the younger ones. A half-day option where a Team Dan the Skipping Man® coach will deliver a session to 15 older children.

The aim is to enhance their ability to deliver our concepts and skills to the younger years and to act as skipping mentors in the school playground.

This includes how to skip, short ropes skills, pairs skipping, long rope and Double Dutch. A free Dan the Skipping Man® Show is also included.

Don't just take our word for it

Our skipping day with the team from Dan the Skipping Man was incredible. We bought every child a new skipping rope for home, but they have all brought them back in to skip at break and lunchtimes. They can't stop skipping!

Partnerships and collaborations

At Dan the Skipping Man®, we work with a wide range of large organisations to deliver our skipping concept to their members. We have significant experience in creating packages that deliver skipping across wider programmes of engagement. If you’d like to talk to us about how we can do that for your organisation then we’d love to hear from you. Just get in touch and we can start the conversation.

And read on for our most popular return visit programme

We provide regular school skipping days for a large number of the schools we work with. Because these help you make the very most of your ropes, as well as always improving the physical and mental health of your children. These follow up days tend to work in the same way, but we replace the initial Mid-Day Supervisor training with other training options. These include our Teacher Team Building Training. This session is designed to develop the expertise of teachers who may be leading skipping as part of PE lessons. We go into detail on the skills and tricks, with a view to simplifying the delivery so that everyone can teach skipping in the best way.
